Philosophy

We at The International Chronicles share a deep conviction and passion for freedom. As a Journal of Political Culture we have endeavored to maintain a superior editorial quality based on thoughtful, intellectually rigorous analysis of geopolitics, economics, media, culture, religion and philosophy. 

In our 21st Century global culture everything is political – and politics can be war by other means, but it should also be inclusive and engaging. We are all involved and we are all responsible. When we tune out democracy withers.  

Our readers have told us they want to contribute to The International Chronicles by sharing opinions, articles, links and media in real-time—making their voices heard and promoting a sense of community and seamless interaction. The International Chronicles has thus evolved into an interactive political discussion forum, accessible through any web-enabled mobile device or tablet and integrated with social media. The new platform encourages the type of unalloyed and synergistic debates that provide intellectual fodder for a living and breathing online forum and inspires real-time give and take.  

Readers are now encouraged to post links, multimedia, comments, and articles directly to and from their own BLOGS, TWITTER or FACEBOOK accounts—creating a positive feedback-loop and enabling them to play a direct part in the evolution of The International Chronicles

As always, we will continue to feature the work of and links to must see content including prominent columnists like Peter Brookes, Mark Steyn, to eminent personalities like Senator Joe Lieberman and Oliver Rothschild, to our own homegrown roster of talented writers around the world.  

You can also set The International Chronicles as your Homepage because it has real-time international news (video and text versions), global weather, financial data and all sorts of ready-made, user-friendly Web Tools for the international traveler -- there is even a Best-Sites function that has links to all the best political sites on the web!

We look forward to your contributions. Please remember, we are an interactive forum – and no longer merely a journal – and we encourage you and all our readers to post articles, essays and videos that you / they have read from other sources and then to post your comment(s) on the article(s). Your posts and comments on articles from other sources are as important to us as your own essays for The International Chronicles because these posts and comments start a conversation and attract a community of politically aware readers who share their opinions with each other. That is really the point of the new platform.

Editorial Guidelines:

As a free-thinking entity in a free society, we are willing to accommodate any and all political and social issues that are of importance to our readers.  We are under no obligation whatsoever to conform to anybody else's standards, ideas, guidelines, pieties, platitudes, taboos or ideology, as we do not in turn ask anyone else to conform to ours.  We welcome vigorous debate (as you can see by our well-visited comment section), and we cordially invite you to argue your point of view, if you have one.  Excessive use of vulgarity and/or threatening rhetoric will not be tolerated.  Other than that, we absolutely stand behind all our columnists, so any call to revise, censor or otherwise terminate any columnist, opinion, or comment will probably go unheeded.  Please consider this to be our formal policy on such issues, so save yourself the time to address us in the future when one of our columns, comments, or opinions offends your sensibilities – trigger-happy calls for censorship offend ours as well.
